Iceland Eruption: Stunning Lava, Earth Crack near Grindavik

Near the town of Grindavik in southern Iceland, a volcano started erupting in a big way on Monday night. This happened after many warning signs, like lots of earthquakes.

The weather office in Iceland said that the eruption made a long crack in the ground, about 2.5 miles long, and sent lava up into the air, as high as 98 feet.

Last month, they moved all 3,400 people who live in Grindavík, the town closest to the volcano on Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula, to a safe place because they thought the volcano would erupt soon.

On Tuesday, the weather office said that the closest part of the eruption to the town was about 1.86 miles away. The eruption was getting smaller, and the lava was moving away from Grindavík.

People were worried that the eruption might go on for weeks, but on Thursday morning, the weather office in Iceland said “no volcanic activity was observed” and “as though there is no activity in the craters.”

Here are some amazing pictures of the eruption:
